Question Seven: I don't know how to use color in my small space. What do you suggest?

1. Color can make a space seem larger.
Since color is a focusing element, the eye is naturally drawn to color over elements that are neutral. Large features of deep color can actually make the eye see beyond the box. For example, painting the walls a deep color can make them disappear to your eye's perception.

2. Use a vibrant pattern on all the walls.
It will blur the edges of the room and make the walls disappear.

3. Limit your use of color.
The only thing you must remember about using color in a small space is that you have to limit yourself to one main color with two secondary colors as accents. Limiting the color palette allows you to make a big color statement in a small room that, if used wisely, will make the small room appear much larger.
